Just to clarify...

Redundant Inbound --> dependent on your ISPs & router...big $$$ if your
ISPs will even allow it.

Redundant Outbound --> dependent on your router.

Most routers that support dual ISPs will allow you to direct specific
service outbound traffic out a specific interface. Or to simply configure
them as primary/backup.

You might be able to do outbound load sharing
https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/ip/border-gateway-protocol-bgp/13762-40.html#anc22
But as I read that, you're basically saying I connect to this half of the
internet via ISP1 and this half via ISP2.

It's not the same as "aggregation" or "load balancing" to give you 50M +
30M = 80M up/down

Thanks Charles. Looks like I have a lot of questions to ask.

Nope.

Depends on the router..

Also the ISPs.

Don't count on getting automatic redundancy. Both ISPs have to agree to
it. Most won't. If they will, it will be big $$$.

We've got two ISPs, but if one goes down. We have to manually change our
public DNS to point to the backup.

Usually have to unplug the primary from our router/firewall also. Since
the router/firewall is connected to the ISP modem, as far as it's
concerned
the primary is still up.

Outbound traffic could be directed out one interface or the other...but
it's not worth the trouble for us.

We're planning on adding another ISP for redundancy.

I'm under the assumption with redundant internet connections, that data
will be coming and going on both connections, simultaneously, all the
time,
unless one of them is down. Am I right?

So if one of them is 50M/50M down/up and the other is 30M/30M down/up,
what
we actually have is 80M/80M down/up. And this assumes our router has 2
WAN
ports.

Thanks.
